“A few years ago, I started making ceramics and realised that it’s something I love doing. Since then, I’ve enjoyed making brightly coloured tiles and other small ceramics, with care and a sense of humour.

I take inspiration for my ceramics from my love of comic strips, fifties advertising and street and pop art. I enjoy the challenge of making a miniature statement, seeing what can be done with a small piece of clay by adding colour, words and sometimes shape or texture.

The majority of my work is hand built using slabs of clay, which are then shaped or joined and decorated. I work mostly in earthenware, and use paint-on glazes which allow me to paint small areas and fine detail, before firing in an electric kiln.”
